Preseason

How does everyone approach this in CFM?Sim the whole thing? Play? Turn down injuries or off? Bench good players?
Just curious

Re: Preseason

I sim the games. I save after each week. I leave injuries on because by me simming the games, I leave the roll of the dice to the computer; if I lose a starter to injury, it’s now my job to figure out who’s up next. But I also take my star players completely off the depth chart in preseason to counteract that. I don’t want to lose Darnold/Bell/high price FA to an injury in preseason. I have a nice balance to it where I’m happy not playing the games but still fill the week to week out. With a full-time job, house and a kid, I wanna squeeze all the playing time I can in.

Re: Preseason

I just sim the games and take my chances on injuries. Ancedotally, it doesn't seem like there are less injured players this year from keeping everyone out in the preseason. My fantasy team looks like a MASH unit.

Re: Preseason

Always grab Free Agents on Wk 1 before any games, again on Week 4 after my game and again on Regular Season Wk 1 before any games. I do the training, and then I sim the games with injuries off. I'm down with guys getting hurt when I'm playing, but not when I'm simming meaningless games.

Re: Preseason

Usually just sim week to week. Injuries on, if I lose a star player then just like real life I have to deal with that.

Re: Preseason

Jeez, I feel like such a coward now for turning injuries off during the preseason. :P

Re: Preseason

I play the games and it subs out the starters automatically when appropriate. Like in the 1st game, the starters play one quarter. So I just the CPU do it, if I get an injury, that's life and its fun to adjust the roster.

Re: Preseason

I play every game, injuries on.*

• Game 1, my starters play 1 drive and then I sub in backups. Backup QB plays til midway through the 3rd, then my 3rd string QB finishes the game.

• Game 2, starters play the first quarter. QB2 plays until halftime, QB3 plays second half.

• Game 3: Starters play the whole first half**. QB2 plays quarter 3, QB3 plays 4th.

•Game 4: Starters sit the whole game, don't play at all. 3rd string QB gets to play all 4 quarters.


*If I had a starter the previous year who suffered a long injury, I'll hold him out of preseason.

**The exception in game 3 comes if I've played a half and I can't move the ball well. In that case, I'll play starters into the 3rd quarter. Ocassionally, if I'm installing a new offense (playbook), I'll adjust playing time depending on how things are going.
